[ARCHIVED] Jason Whedon Receives NMB Chamber Valor Award

Jason Whedon - NMB Chamber Award

NMB CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU PRESENTS VALOR AWARD TO JASON WHEDON

Today, the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitors Bureau presented North Myrtle Beach Firefighter/EMT Jason Whedon with its Valor Award.

The annual award is provided to a young professional who is engaged in the community and demonstrates their passion for the community through leadership and other contributions that make North Myrtle Beach an even greater place in which to live, work and play.

On February 7, 2020, Whedon and his crew responded to an emergency call for an infant choking. His unit was the first to arrive on the scene and found a 9-month-old infant unresponsive in his mother's arms. Whedon successfully freed the blockage and the infant immediately began to breathe and cough. Additional interventions led to the continued improvement of the infant prior to transport to the emergency room.
